The indoor air quality observatory - outcomes of a decade of research and perspectives | 2014 | English
For over a decade now, the OQAI — Observatoire de la qualité de l’air intérieur [French observatory for indoor air quality] — has been leading research into indoor air quality and occupant comfort in living spaces: housing, schools, offices, leisu
We have analysed the steady wind model error based on a simplified building model with one leak on the windward side and one on the leeward side of the building.
Temperature and pressure corrections for power-law coefficients of airflow through ventilation system components and leaks | 2014 | English
The characterization of power-law coefficients of the airflow through ventilation system components and ductwork or building leaks should include corrections on the airflow rate measurement because of two phenomena: a) the temperature and pressure
Development of a Unique Thermal and Indoor Air Quality Probabilistic Modelling Tool for Assessing the Impact of Lowering Building Ventilation Rates | 2014 | English
Adequate ventilation is necessary to maintain thermal comfort and remove indoor air pollutant concentrations (Crump et al., 2005).
The term of “Active House” recently developed, addressing houses that target a balanced optimization of indoor environmental quality, energy performance and environmental performance.
The article presents the results of our research, which was realized under a cooperation project between the University of Pécs, Hungary and the University of Osijek, Croatia.
Strategies for the planning and implementation of airtightness on existing sloped roofs | 2014 | English
A project at the Energie- und Umweltzentrum (e.u.[z].) Springe looked into strategies how insulation and sealing components can be installed in existing constructions to improve the best airtightness.
Optimal positioning of air-exhaust openings in an operating room based on recovery test: a numerical study | 2014 | English
This study investigates the influence of outlet location on conventional, turbulent-mixing operating-room (OR) ventilation performance. This was done by numerical simulation using computational fluid dynamics.
The paper investigates the possibility for using a traditional ventilation system with ceiling mounted diffusers to provide heating under winter time conditions in relatively cold climates – in buildings with low transmition losses such as “passiv
Simulation analysis for indoor temperature increase and reduction of heating load in the detached house with buoyancy ventilated wall in winter | 2014 | English
Detached residential wooden houses are a common type of housing in Japan. Decay of wooden components within the walls is easily caused by condensation or defective flushing.
Development of a decentralized and compact comfort ventilation system with highly efficient heat recovery for the minimal invasive refurbishment of buildings | 2014 | English
To ensure adequate indoor air quality, ventilation is necessary in new constructions as well as in modernized existing buildings. In order to minimize energy losses, ventilation systems with integrated heat recovery should be used.
This research investigates the significance of the moisture buffering and latent heat capacities in exposed cross-laminated timber (CLT) walls with the respect to indoor climate and energy consumption.
Numerical simulation of indoor air quality - mechanical ventilation system supplied periodically vs. natural ventilation | 2014 | English
Building integrated renewable energy sources e.g. photovoltaic system is one of the promised solution for improving energy efficiency in building.
Optimization of data center chilled water cooling system according to annual power consumption criterion | 2014 | English
The paper presents optimization model of the chilled water based data center cooling system.
Airtightness of buildings is necessary to obtain healthy, sustainable and energy efficient buildings. Measuring the airtightness of a building has become more common lately, much due to the higher energy use in leaky buildings.
Multi-zone demand-controlled ventilation in residential buildings: An experimental case study | 2014 | English
Numerous studies have investigated the application of multi-zone demand-controlled ventilation for office buildings.
